I have a DI-624M that worked fine for some months. I decided to update to the newest firmware and now is dead. Hours of troubleshooting without any solution, tech support was really poor and unable to provide a working solution. Not possible to reset after many trials. NEVER buy a Dlink product, save your money and your TIME!!

I have used a D-Link DI-624 router for years. I have upgraded the firmware until they stopped supporting the unit, shortly after being sold.

This router has been nothing but trouble once bittorrents came on the scene. It hangs almost every fews hours to a day and needs to be reset.

I have diiscussed this with Dlink in order to purchase a new model but they could not tell me in any words that they have addresed the problem with their newer products.

I would stay away from DLINK in future. My sone does 60-90GB per day and never has a problem wth his LinkSys router and multiple machines bitorrenting. Rogers warns him all the time about bandwidth and threatened him for using port 25 for some idiotic reason.

I too have had this router for years. Wow, it's been over 10 years now and I have never had any trouble with it. It's rock solid. Connects to all my wireless devices with little or no headaches. Has a really good transmission range and tons of features. In fact, this is a great all around router for any level, I think.
When I bought it (Router and PCMCIA card combo) I knew nothing about routers or WiFi. I learned it all on on this unit.
Advanced port forwarding, security and filtering.
I found I get better overall speed using MAC filtering and static DHCP over encryption. Too bad it's discontinued. I plan to upgrade to an "N" router eventually but I will still keep using this gem since it has created a warm and fuzzy place in my heart.
I really like this router.
